History
PredecessorFirst Philippe government

The second Philippe government is the forty-first government of the French Fifth Republic. It is the second government formed by Édouard Philippe under President Emmanuel Macron, following the 2017 legislative elections and the dissolution of the first Philippe government on 19 June 2017.

The second Philippe government was formed following scandal among ministers during the first Philippe government. La République En Marche! (REM) allies Democratic Movement (MoDem) were facing scandal following allegations that the party used EU funds to pay party workers.[1] Armed Forces Minister Sylvie Goulard was the first to step down, resigning on 20 June 2017;[2] the following day, Minister of Justice François Bayrou and European Affairs Minister, Marielle de Sarnez stepped down.[3] Richard Ferrand, Minister of Territorial Cohesion, stepped down on 19 June 2017 following Le Canard Enchaîné publishing allegations of nepotism on 24 May 2017.[4] Macron defended Ferrand despite the allegations and public polling showing that 70% of respondents wanted Ferrand to step down.[5] On 1 July 2017, a regional prosecutor announced that authorities had launched a preliminary investigation into Ferrand.[6] Ferrand responded to the allegations saying everything was "legal, public and transparent",[7][8] he was one of the founding members of La République En Marche! and is currently serving as President of the National Assembly.

On 31 July 2018, the second Philippe government survived two motions of no confidence following the Benalla affair: the first one (entered by The Republicans group) obtained 103 ayes, while the second (entered by the groups New Left, Democratic Republican Left and La France Insoumise) obtained 63 votes. Both motions did not reach the quorum of 289 votes required in the National Assembly.[9]

Following the yellow vests movement a motion of no confidence was initiated by the Socialist Party, the French Communist Party and La France Insoumise on 13 December 2018 but the government survived the motion easily as there were merely 70 votes in favour, falling short of the required number of 289.[10]
